Author Cerys Parker


  • 1 bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1 bottle Shimmer Silver Spray for Cakes
  • 1/3 cup honey


  • In a large glass bowl, pour all of the chocolate chips. 
  • Microwave on high for one minute. 
  • The chips will have melted slightly. Stir them and put them back into the microwave for one more minute.
  •  Remove them and stir until any remaining chunks are incorporated well.
  • Pour in the honey and stir some more. 
  • Place a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet. 
  • Dump the chocolate/honey mixture on to it and spread it out until it's about ½ inch thick. 
  • Shake out some sprinkles to cover the surface. 
  • Let sit for at least four hours or overnight.
  • The mixture will solidify, but will also be pliable. When enough time has passed, knead the clay a bit, adding more sprinkles until it is sufficiently sparkling.
  • Break off small pieces of the clay and shape them into rocks. 
  • Pour a little more sprinkles out on your wax paper and roll your rocks gently through them to give them a good shining coating.
  • Enjoy your edible moon rocks.
